  • I had severe hypothyroidism. I had dry skin, dry lips, achiness all over, blury vision, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, tiredness to where I counldn't get out of bed...I thought I was going crazy. I couldn't comprehend what I was reading, even though I read well. I had trouble concentrating. Your TSH should be under 3. Mine was 40. I was in crisis and they wanted to hospitalize me, but I said no. I wasn't thinking clearly and should have done it.

  • I have it but was diagnosed at birth. I know after I had my son it wasn't normal. I felt pretty much like ann. above. I also had some hair loss that at one point had a bald patch. I am now regulated again but still feel pretty drained.
